Can I use a macro to run multiple queries in sequence?

Any pointers would be appreciated!

Is There A Way To Know What Queries In A Macro Are Running?

May 16, 2006

I've got a Macro that runs well over 100 queries as well as sub-macros. I'd like to know what query the Macro is running. My best solution so far was to create a bunch of forms that open and close with the name of each query, but that's kind of sloppy. I don't think I can use the msgbox because it prompts me to press 'OK' to continue. Any thoughts?

Queries :: Pop Up Messages When Running Update Query / Macro

Jan 1, 2015

I have 3 different "buttons" on my form that run individual update queries. I know these update queries are running correctly. Decided to make a macro that will allow me to run all these queries by clicking one macro button.

My question is: Is there some way to stop the pop up msg that advises I am about to run an update query and the next pop up msg that informs me of how many rows I am going to update?

These pop up boxes are starting to drive me crazy when I run the macro.

Running A Query / Macro Through Scheduled Task?

Aug 25, 2012

I have a MS Access append query that updates a table from a linked Excel spreadsheet. Im trying to automate the running of the query during the night.

Ive tried a couple of ways to schedule the task with Windows Task Scheduler, although each time, it appears to start the job, but then just hang (task never completes, doesnt run the query or macro and when I log back into Windows, the msaccess.exe process is running).

Methods Ive used are:

- command line with /x macroname

- vbs script which runs the query / macro

'Read from a Microsoft ACCESS database
Option Explicit
dim oaccess
'execute another Access macro
set oaccess = createobject("access.application")
oaccess.opencurrentdatabase "H:Database.mdb"
oaccess.docmd.setwarnings false
oaccess.DoCmd.RunMacro "Macro1"
oaccess.docmd.setwarnings true
set oaccess=nothing

- .bat file which just has the command line in it.They all run fine when I am logged in, although it seems to hang when I am logged off the network. I have the correct permissions as Ive scheduled a Excel macro to run and its fine.

Queries :: Running Multiple Queries To 1 Excel File With Different Tabs For Each Query

Jul 18, 2013

I'm using Access 2003 and excel 2003.

We currently manually run 5 different queries then copy and paste this data into 5 separate tabs on 1 workbook, I'm trying to automate some of this process if possible.

I am trying to use the 'transferspreadsheet' action within a macro to run a query and post it into a template excel file, using this code:

Trasfer Type Export
Spreadsheet Type Excel 8-10
Table Name (query Name)
FIle Name (FIle location)
Has field names No
Range Blank
This does seem to work and puts the data on a new tab on the specified workbook.

However I have a few questions:

1. Can you specify which query gets put onto which tab in excel? The tabs have different fixed names.

2. Can you specify which Cell the data gets pasted into to? As each tab has a set of headers and titles which need to remain.i.e would need to get query 1 to start in cell A4.

3. How would you expand the above out so that it runs all 5 queries, would you just add in multiple transfer spreadsheet actions in the same macro?

Queries :: Report Or Macro To Run Multiple Queries Using Same Parameters?

Aug 9, 2013

So I run cash flow for a business, and we export data from Oracle and insert it into an access database. I have to run about 25 queries, entering in the same parameters for each. We number each week of the year. So for say the first week in January, I would run the first query and it asks: Beginning Week, I enter in 1, then another paramter value asks me the ending week. I have to enter in these parameters for each of the 25 or so queries, and it becomes quite irritating. Each query has a number of columns, but I am only interested in obtaining the sum of one of the columns, titled Distribution amount. So I am looking for something that will run each of my specified queries, then spit out the total of the distribution column for each in a table like.

Query 1: Total Distribution
Query 2: Total Distribution

Is there anything that would allow me to do this, with entering in the week parameter once, say week 1 start, week 1 end. and it use those same parameters for each query?

Running Queries

I did 2 ways:

If I created a query named qry1,
then, I created another query (qry2) which include qry1.
Is that meaning running 2 queries?
Firstly, run qry1 result, then run qry2.

Please let me know, thanks.

Queries :: Error Handling In A Query That Was Run From A Macro

Aug 19, 2013

(I'm not sure if this belongs in the macro or query forum)

I have a macro that opens 15 queries and ends with opening a report.

The final query asks the user to type in beginning date, then an end date. Now when there's a data mismatch (i.e., he spells feburary), the macro halts. No harm no foul, they can just click the command button again, but I'd rather not.

What I'd like to do is place a msgbox (i.e., "Check Your Spelling") and then reroute them back to the query.

Queries- Running/Display Results?

Aug 30, 2007

Hey guys-
I have a database of properties for sale. I want to calculate the asking prices of each record (for sale) against the sold prices of all the houses in the same area. Area is defined as a numeric number, and each property has one assigned to it. My question is this-
I have a table of all the properties. Do I run the query and store the results in a specific cell in the table- and then use a form to display those results? Or do I run the query from a form and not store the calculated results at all? I will be adding/updating info on a daily basis, so these calculation results will also change daily. Obviously I am fairly new to Access and trying to figure out how to do this stuff. Using Access 2002. Either way, I assume i'll be using a form to display the results one way or another...

Running Two Queries From One Inputbox Result!?

Feb 25, 2005


I have created the following function in my datebase so that i could specify the date a query works from.

Option Compare Database

Function GetParmValue() As Date

GetParmValue = InputBox("Please enter the date you wish to update!?")

End Function

I have a button on a form that runs the query in question, there is also an identical query that needs to be ran using the same result from the input box but rather than it display the input box twice i wondered if there was a way i could use the result from one of the boxes with both queries!?

Here is the code for the button;

Private Sub bImport5_Click()

DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.OpenQuery "Update"
DoCmd.OpenQuery "UpdateFuture"
DoCmd.OpenQuery "MoveFuture"
DoCmd.SetWarnings True
MsgBox "Files have now been updated to the specified date and moved to the Future Dated table!", vbOKOnly, "Update Complete"

End Sub

Any ideas guys?

Many thanks

Queries :: Running Count Within Group

Sep 15, 2014

I have data like so:

SubjectID VisitID
1 5
1 5
2 7
2 7
2 9
2 9

And need to return a running count for the number of visits per subject, so:

SubjectID VisitID VisitCount
1 5 1
1 5 1
2 7 1
2 7 1
2 9 2
2 9 2

I'd like to use DCount and have tried all variations of the following, but none of them returns the correct number:

VisitNumber: DCount("*","mytable","VisitID >= " & [VisitID] & " AND SubjectID =" & [SubjectID])

Queries :: Running Sum Query Across Groups

Mar 16, 2014

creating a query with a running sum (cumulative total) across two categories. I need to accumulate Wages by employee, by calendar year for every day/every job worked. I have a table containing over 33,000 records, the years span from 2009 to 2014 with multiple employees.

The Dsum option I have found on the internet is too time-consuming and locks up my query for the over 33,000 records I need to generate results for. It needs to be a SQL statement. Although all the SQL statement I have tried simply total all Wages for every entry ever made in the column, instead of per calendar year, per employee.

Here are my fields:
Calyear = Ascending
Employee Name = Ascending
WorkDate = Ascending


There may be more than one entry per day per employee in a given year. This is so I can calculate certain payroll taxes which are based on cumulative wages amounts.

Queries :: Stop Query From Running Automatically

Jan 14, 2014

I have a form with tab set one tab called "Enter Receipt" and another that houses 2 queries called "Reconcile". My issue is when I open that form, I have an On Current Macro to go to NEW record for my Enter Receipt, but I am getting a delay while the query status bar runs the other queries. I was hoping not to have those ran until i enter the parameters and hit the run button on that "reconcile tab".

Everything else works, i just need the queries to keep from running when i load the form. my queries i moved from EDITED to NO LOCKS thinking the On Current new record may affected them, not change in delay.

Queries :: Running Total Field In Query

May 20, 2015

I have a table with dates in field1 and an amount of seconds in field2.

field1 field2
01/01/2015, 1345
02/01/2015, -132
04/01/2015, 259

I would like to produce a query that performs a running total in the third column like so:

field1 field2 field3
01/01/2015, 1345, 1345
02/01/2015, -132, 1213
04/01/2015, 259, 1472

This is quite simple to achieve in Excel. (eg =SUM($B$1:B3))

What is the query formula for Access?

Queries :: Running Totals Access Query

Jun 18, 2013

I have a table for timesheet entry for a local building firm. I have a separate table containing employees and rates. I have created query "Qry_ Time Costs" which calculates the cost of hours worked by each employee by multiplying the hours field in the timesheet entry table by the rate field in the employees table.From "Qry_TimeCosts" I have created "Qry_TimeCosts1" in which i have included a running total field for time costs per day using the DSum function.

SELECT Qry_TimeCosts.[Project Title], Qry_TimeCosts.[Build Element], Qry_TimeCosts.[Date Worked], Sum(Qry_TimeCosts.Hours) AS Hours, Sum(Qry_TimeCosts.Cost) AS Cost, DSum("[cost]","qry_timecosts","[project title]='" & [project title] & "'" & "AND [build element] ='" & [build element] & "'" & "AND [date worked] <=#" & [date worked] & "#" & "") AS RunTot
FROM Qry_TimeCosts
GROUP BY Qry_TimeCosts.[Project Title], Qry_TimeCosts.[Build Element], Qry_TimeCosts.[Date Worked], DSum("[cost]","qry_timecosts","[project title]='" & [project title] & "'" & "AND [build element] ='" & [build element] & "'" & "AND [date worked] <=#" & [date worked] & "#" & "")
HAVING (((Qry_TimeCosts.[Build Element]) Is Not Null));

This seems to be working for some projects and not for others. In particular dates 3rd 4th and 5th of June seem to be showing null fields, where all other dates have values. A few projects are showing inaccurate running totals whilst others are working fine.
